My usual go-to is SERT when it comes to long gun cases, but I need a smallish case for a CZ scorpion sbr that's really only a range toy.
Elite Survival Systems makes different soft cases and the price is attractive. I'm looking at the 18" discreet case for the UMP45. Looks like it will fit my CZ with the stock folded.

How's the quality and workmanship? Most importantly, how is the zipper? Looks like these are made in the USA too which is a bonus.

I have 2 of them. One for a M1A and the other for a AR15. I don't use them everyday, mostly when I go to a range or traveling, but I think they are well made. Mine are still in good shape and I've had them probably 6 years or so.
And I've had no problems with the zipper.

I also have two of them one for an MCX and another for an FNH PS90. Well made quality cases. Very pleased with mine.

I have several Assault System rifle cases from the mid to early 80's
0 issues

I even have some of the luggage left (just cordura, no padding) that I still use,
one is starting to fray a bit on and inside seam but otherwise un noticeable from the outside,


good quality stuff,

having said that, all my stuff is well over 25 yrs old, I would imagine the quality is still good on the new stuff

Just wanted to update this thread.
I ended up buying the Elite Survival Systems Assault case made for the HK UMP. It's 18x10.5 inches. It fits my CZ Evo3 perfectly. The suppressor and an extra bag with my eyepro, ears, and two extra mags and some tools fits inside as well.

The outside features pockets for 5 mags which fit the PSA 35 rounders perfectly. I kinda wish it were more discrete..perhaps a longer flap to cover the whole thing so it doesn't look like mag pouches. There's a small flap pocket also that holds a copy of my tax stamp. When carried with the backside exposed it looks like a generic laptop bag or small suitcase.

It seems well-made overall, maybe not worth the $67 I spent on Amazon. It feels more like a $40-$50 bag.
My biggest concern is that the 'hinge' opens at the top of the case rather than the bottom. Hence the zipper runs around the sides and bottom of the case rather than the sides and top when carried. This seems backwards. In an unlikely zipper failure situation the contents could potentially spill.

We'll see how it holds up over time. I plan on carrying it frequently, not only as a range bag but also when I want to carry something smaller than an AR when travelling.

I just purchased one of their covert carry rifle cases for my brand new Daniel Defense M4v7. The 33 inch model. And it fits perfectly. Nice heavy duty zippers. Nice adjustable tie down straps to secure the rifle. 3 mag pouches inside. It’s seems very well made. It was on sale at Optics Planet.

Zipper on bottom is good, it won’t collect the rain and drip the contents.
Tie downs should keep everything in order in case it does open.

I just went to Costco and bought a Swiss Gear backpack they were selling for school. It's well built and doesn't scream anything gun related. My SBR Scorpion fit perfectly even with some padding on the bottom for the CZ to rest on.
